Paolo Di Paolo photos 1954-1968 at Rome's MAXXI

Paolo Di Paolo: Mondo Perduto: Fotografie 1954-1968.

17 April-23 June. MAXXI presents the photographs of Paolo di Paolo in an exhibition it describes as a "delicate, rigorous and wise recount" of an Italy emerging from the ashes of world war two.

Di Paolo published more than 500 photographs in the former Italian weekly news-magazine Il Mondo in the 1950s and 1960s, chronicling figures from the worlds of art, culture, fashion and cinema as well as ordinary people.

Di Paolo's photographs, rediscovered after more that 50 years of neglect, include images of Pier Paolo Pasolini at Monte dei Cocci in Rome, Tennesse Williams on the beach with his dog, Anna Magnani with her son on the Circeo beach, and Sofia Loren joking with Marcello Mastroianni at Cinecittà studios.

For details see MAXXI website.
